Look out for the sombreros, margaritas and everyone saying “gracias” at your local Mexican restaurant on May 5, Cinco de Mayo, when many celebrate the “biggest Mexican holiday of the year.“
What does Cinco de Mayo refer to besides the Fifth of May
On May 5, 1862, in Puebla de Los Angeles, a small town in east-central Mexico, 6,000 French troops faced 2,000 Mexican soldiers at daybreak. By the evening, Mexico had claimed victory.
What made the victory so significant was it started the push to get France out of the country at a time when the country was “economically vulnerable” and “beleaguered.”
Cinco de Mayo is a day to celebrate freedom, liberty, community strength and solidarity.
This year there are plenty of ways to celebrate:
